The Vengeance of God
Nahum 1:1 to 3:1
1:1 The burden of Nineveh and all of the associated imaginings in the mind of a guy named Nahum.
God is jealous. God is revengeful. God is furious. So then, we've established that God is jealous, revengeful, and furious. He is slow to anger…

Was called into the lounge by three family members to tell me I am an idiot in believing what I do. They spent the day looking at does Aliens exist on youtube today, and rounded it of with Loyd Pely. Evolution does not exist, Darwin is an idiot because this guy says so. I aked if they have done research and they said no. My mother just told me evolution is not real as she has experienced and witnessed to many miracles in life. I have never called them in to insult there believes why do they…Continue

the american oil companies
chomping at the bit
begin to salivate & lick their lips,
with the foam
of potent country-gutting
for while he was alive,
Venezuela was one of the only
who resisted the empire’s attempts to
penetrate it & whore it out to the
highest capitalist bidder---
with Chavez dead,
not only will the oil…Continue

Tonight I attended a talk by Dr. Craig. I think some commentary on his talk is warranted as he presented himself somewhat differently than in other talks and debates I have seen on the internet. The organizers of the talk were a collection of religious groups, specifically Christian groups and I think this factored into the way he presented himself. He went through his regular dossier of arguments, ontological, KCA, teleological but added on his understanding of the resurrection of Jesus as…Continue

OK, so this post is very long overdue. I have been struggling to keep up to my blogging duties due to the small matter of university exams. However, you will be pleased to know that they have finished, and so has my blogging hiatus. So, a welcome back is in order.
I am going to start this post by saying that…Continue

Here is a very good lecture hosted by Brian Cox. It gives a very good explanation of how the Universe works. It also explains how Science and the Scientific Method work. The lecture was hosted before the discovery of the Higgs particle but that does not take from it as it only emphasises how the scientific method really does works. It covers quantum mechanics and Relativity in easy terms. Allow an hour to watch. Time well spent.…Continue

Albert Perry carried a secret in his DNA: a Y chromosome so distinctive that it reveals new information about the origin of our species. It shows that the last common male ancestor down the paternal line of our species is over twice as old as we thought.…Continue

My friend's facebook status: "watched first showing of the episode of The Bible on history channel." My reply: "Here are some spoilers: Part I- God acts like a dick. Part II- God starts acting alright. Jesus dies. So it's kind of like a Lifetime movie but in reverse." He deleted it. I forgot middle-class white people don't like the word "dick."

I would like to post a conversation I just had on Google+. I understand how my statements may sound offensive but I see things as I see it. My opinion is not unheard of but I am not saying it is fact. However, my issue really isnt about what I said it is about the response it received from a guy who didn't like what I said but posted his opinions. I don't understand them and I was wondering if someone could explain what he means by his definition of consciousness and "objective…Continue
I knew a little old lady who believed, till the day she died, that there was a God in heaven and thus everything was good with the world.
And yet this same little old lady could never convince herself that the light in her fridge went off when she closed the door.

I've just been, yesterday, to the National Federation for Atheist, Humanist, and Secular Student Societies' conference in Conway Hall, London. The AHS are a group wholly facilitated and supported by the - perhaps more familiar - British Humanist Association, and the day involved many high-profile…Continue
